Exploitation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Quantity Surveying Practice: Using AI as an opportunity to improve Cost Certainty

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) often tends to go hand in hand for its propensity to mimic human cognitive functions such as problem solving, pattern recognition and respond to certain actions accordingly. Read more

Doctorate by Design in Landscape Architecture

The Doctorate by Design from the University of Sheffield, is the first PhD programme in the UK in which you can combine creative practice, with critical analysis in Landscape Architecture. Read more

Net zero housing retrofits - assuring a sustainable low-carbon transition in the domestic sector

The UK has committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The UK's 29 million houses represent 14% of total emissions (CCC, 2019), with nearly 90% of these built more than 20 years ago before stricter energy efficiency standards came into force (Ince & Marvin, 2019). Read more

Decarbonisation of the Food System

As the world transitions to a low carbon economic system, dramatic changes will be required across the all sectors. The food system, which is currently estimated to be responsible for 20-30% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, is one where particular urgency is required. Read more

PhDs in Natural and Built Environment

Our research seeks to understand the impact of social, environmental, and economic changes on society, drawing on this understanding to contribute to the better design and planning of spaces and places. Read more

Modular and industrialised solutions for building retrofit

More than 85% of the 2050 building stock is already built and almost all will require some form of retrofit/renovation in order to meet global carbon emissions reductions goals. Read more

Managing Risk in Projects with Digital Twins

A digital twin is a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical object or a system, such as a built asset or a socio-technical system. Read more

School ventilation and indoor environment quality

Children are a particularly vulnerable section of society. They are physiologically less able to regulate their temperature and are more vulnerable to exposure to air pollution than adults. Read more

Adaptive thermal comfort in office buildings: an Adaptive Predict Mean Vote model

In recent years, adaptive thermal comfort studies played a positive role in sustainability in buildings. The exploration of thermal adaptation in different regions, different types of buildings, and different demographic groups are the research trend internationally. Read more
